A Most Unusual Camera
A hotel suite, that in this instance serves as a den of crime. The aftermath of a rather minor event to be noted on a police blotter, an insurance claim, perhaps a three-inch box on page twelve of the evening paper. Small addenda to be added to the list of the loot: A camera. A most unimposing addition to the flotsam and jetsam that it came with. Hardly worth mentioning really, because cameras are cameras. Some expensive, some purchasable at five-and-dime stores. But this camera, this one's unusual, because in just a moment we'll watch it inject itself into the destinies of three people. It happens to be a fact that the pictures that it takes can only be developed in The Twilight Zone. Object known as a camera, vintage uncertain, origin unknown. But for the greedy, the avaricious, the fleet of foot who can run a four-minute mile so long as they're chasing a fast buck, it makes believe that it's an ally, but it isn't at all. It's a beckoning come-on for a quick walk around the block in the Twilight Zone.
About this creation


Two thieves, Chester and Paula, rob a curio shop; among the (otherwise worthless) loot is a strange camera. The pair come to realize that its pictures reveal the future, specifically five minutes ahead. After Paula’s escapee brother Woodward shows up, they decide to use the camera to take pictures at the racetrack. The trio win every time and leave with a considerable sum.

Back at their hotel, the French waiter notices their unusual camera and mentions the curious inscription (hitherto missed by the trio): "ten to an owner". The gang rush the waiter out of the room and determine that they now have only two pictures left. They disagree on how and when to use those remaining. While tugging over the camera, a picture is wasted (revealing Paula recoiling in horror). The men fight each other and, in their struggle, fall out the window to their deaths. Paula (after a curious show of mock remorse) takes a picture of the courtyard below the window and begins collecting the day's winnings before checking out. Before she can leave, the waiter returns and robs her. He then notes that her last picture shows more than two bodies in the courtyard. Puzzled, Paula goes to the window, trips over a wire and falls out the window. Then the waiter counts the corpses, "Yes, there are more than two bodies down there. Just like the picture shows. One, two, three... four?" Shocked, he falls too, leaving the camera lying on the ground.



A bunch of stolen stuff. Glassses and portraits are some examples.
